Crowds today gathered for the "Save Malaysia" rally in Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur, to protest the attorney-general's decision to halt the corruption trial of Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
Dressed in white, they gathered at the Kampung Baru mosque after the afternoon prayer, carrying placards calling for the Umno president to be re-prosecuted.
They then began moving to the Dang Wangi police headquarters, where a police report will be lodged by the organiser's secretariat, Tun Faisal Ismail Aziz.
Those in attendance included activist Badrul Hisham Shaharin or Chegubard, who was released following his arrest several days ago, Bersatu information chief Razali Idris, and Pejuang information chief Rafique Rashid.
Tun Faisal earlier said in his speech that no gathering would be held.
"We want to express our desire, guaranteed under the constitution, that there was something amiss when Zahid was given the DNAA," he said, referring to the discharge not amounting to acquittal granted to Zahid for 47 charges of corruption in the Yayasan Akalbudi case.
"Before the election, they promised they would jail Zahid, not put him in Putrajaya."
